Post by: Laevatein on February 19, 2007, 09:42:36 AM
Since I'm planning on having my PC reformatted soon, I think I'll just ask you guys a question:

Is there a way to save the links on internet favorites without having to manually record and then add them again after a reformat?

Big question right back at you:

Are you using Firefox by any chance?  ^___^
Title: Random PC Questions
Post by: panithan on February 19, 2007, 09:54:59 AM
If you're using IE...
The folder for Internet Explorer's favorite is at:

C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Favorites

You can copy that folder into CD,USB flashdrive, etc. Since it contains a link to the web page, it wouldn't be so big.
Does that help?

IE it is, and yes that was most appreciated, thanks :D

Another if I may ask... know of any good freeware reg cleaners around? My reg is rather cluttered with the amount of software I've been installing and removing these past few months, and even with the upcoming reformat would like to keep it clean ^^;; And of course, I'll need it to keep this PC healthy in the future ^^;

I have a question, too. Is there a way to prevent automatic reboots after Windows XP SP2's (critical) upgrades? Just because a few days ago, the computer rebooted in the middle of the night, when everyone was sleeping. I was not happy when I saw this, because I was downloaded something...

Maybe you first should try to set your password anew... basically boot from the ubuntu-CD open a terminal mount the Linux partition to /mnt
become root (if you aren't, whoami tells you your username), cd /mnt
chroot /mnt
passwd $user


where $user is your username.

Well, trouble started when I swapped from the 6800GT to an X1950 Pro card.  Obviously the xserver wouldn't start, but I knew how to deal with that.  But now, when I try to login, I just get sent back to the login screen every time.   I'm still running Dapper, so I figgered I'd just change to Edgy instead, since it's newer.  I don't have anything I need to keep, as I hardly ever save anything to my Linux partitions.

Well, for the time being getting Ubuntu running again isn't a problem.  The ATI card suddenly decided to fart in my general direction and apparently start giving me trouble.   The computer locked up while playing a game, I figgered I'd try switching drivers and reinstall some older ones (that works with the card).  I uninstall, reboot, clean and install the other drivers.  The card (or rather Windows) starts whining about how it has some kind of undefined problem in the usual helpful way and refuses to work properly.  So I stuck the old 6800GT card in there and now stuff works again.  I'll troubleshoot later, I can't be bothered right now.  But Ubuntu works again, lol.    I think I'll go with nVidia for my next rig. (Which hopefully is just around the corner).

Hay guys I know how to solve your problems!

-Get windows XP Pro system restore CD from friend.
-Install
-Key doesn't work anymore of course so call Microsoft Activation Helpdesk and say that you just bought a new PC (say it's a Dell) and it has an invalid keycode.
-Key Get!

I kid you not about calling them and simply saying it doesn't work, I did the same.

Hey, this thread hasn't been used in a while...I'm here to fix that though :D

I want to install Uxtheme Multi-Patcher, so I can get new themes for my computer. I'm running Windows XP SP 2 build 2600, and I've been told that Uxtheme Multi-Patcher can cause instability with build 2600 XP's. Is this true, and if so, is there any way to get around this?

Here's the site:

Hummmmmmm~
I've no experience of using the Uxtheme MP, but I've been using StyleXP a while now which is essentially the same thing...and I'm running the 2600 builds as well, and the only problem I've had is that my bootscreen tells me it's an OS/2 warp compy. So i recommend using that if you're unsure.

Do you dual-boot (using OS/2)? Or use some sort of theme relating to OS/2 Warp? Otherwise, that's a mighty strange problem O___O
Title: Random PC Questions
Post by: NejinOniwa on May 01, 2007, 03:47:18 AM
Neither. There is an option in sxp to change your bootscreen, but there's no OS/2 one on the list and I've tried changing it to others as well. It doesn't work at all...so yes, it's a mighty strange problem ^-^ But it doesn't really do much anyway, so I'm not bothered by it.

Sorry--what I meant to say was, the fact that NejinOniwa's Windows thinks it's an OS/2 is freaky...I love OS/2-sama! I appreciate her hate of M$ ;010

That article is very sad...I'm facing a problem of love the OS (Windows) hate the company (M$) here...

Back onto topic, if I do install StyleXP or Uxtheme multi-patcher, and I don't like it/something happens, will doing a system restore (to an earlier time, not factory settings) get rid of any harm? Or does 'system instability' mean my comp might not boot up, etc...In short, if something happens, can I reverse it?
Title: Random PC Questions
Post by: NejinOniwa on May 02, 2007, 07:37:20 AM
StyleXP has a built-in function that can restore stuff that are dangerous (or relatively so at least) to play with to original settings. This hasn't worked for my bootscreen, though, but I've never faced any problems at all with it anyway, so there's little to worry about. Besides, i don't even think it was stylexp that messed up my bootscreen, when i give it some thought, since it doesn't overwrite the base file, and I can't change my bootscreen to anything else now...but anyway, SXP isn't a dangerous toy,
s'what i'm saying. It can at worst make your UI very ugly, and then you can quite easily fix it back again.

Hmmm...maybe I will give it a try. And another thing (yeah, I'm quite nitpicky), I've heard somewhere that with Uxtheme multi-patcher, you can't use the original XP themes, or it deletes them or someting...is the same true of SXP?
Title: Random PC Questions
Post by: NejinOniwa on May 02, 2007, 01:50:07 PM
Nein. SXP allows you to add additional folders for looking for visual styles and such, but you can still browse through the system ones as well. Handily enough you can also disable them by un-checking the "Show System Files" box (or something). It's a handy tool!

What I mean by “shop” is the Best Buy repair facility in Kentucky. K8 has been sent off to get a variable laundry list of repairs done while still under warranty. Unfortunately, they give no guarantee they won’t format the HD, or replace the computer for an identical model if there are too many repairs to be done. Since K8’s maladies are garden variety screen and keyboard problems, I doubt they’ll replace the entire machine.

Right now I'm on DY, a slow but reliable HP laptop running XP.

I tell ya, those repair people can be vile things.  -v-
Which is why it's worth the investment to learn how to fix your own computer hardware, warranties be damned.  With the right expertise, even an unbootable machine can be resurrected, and an entire hard drive can be imaged to s safe location before submitting it the mercy of Worst Buy tech support.  -v-;

Which reminds me, they really did end up charging my friend $250USD for ridding her Windows system of some viruses, so they are officially crooks in my book.  Thanks to them, I won't be able to show her PCLInuxOS until she finally ends up squeezing her money's worth out of that money pit.  TvT

(at that price, it would've been worth it more to just buy another eMachine)
Title: Random PC Questions

The extended warranty was only $300.

Best $300 EVER. New motherboad, AC adapter, hinges (the hinges were cracked), and this was in the fist six months. emachines doesn't have a long and distinguished legacy of hardware excellence :(

Ironically, the software/OS has been 100% stable. Except for the time when the motherboard went, and that's another story...

Ah yeah, I know, I told her that eMachines were pretty crummy, but she bought it anyway cause she said she would only use it for internet access (same for her son).  

That's why I joked that, for $250 USD, she could get a Wii with Wii Sports plus an Internet browser.... ^v^

Now that you reminded me, I think she even purchased one of those "high-end" models of eMachines.  Guess you can say it's one of those consumer mental paradoxes that make these companies so much money.  ^^;

Don't get me started on my tech support, cause she called up Worst Buy the evening AFTER I volunteered to fix her system and give her Knoppix to keep her company till my arrival the following day.  -v-

Next time her son breaks her machine again, I'll try to recommend the exact opposite of what she needs to do so that maybe she'll get it right this time.  -v-

Amiga Partitions thru Linux-Unix?

Linux can access Amiga partitions only if formatted in old Amiga Fast File System called FFS (AFFS).

(Not to be confused with FFS from BSD)

http://tldp.org/FAQ/Linux-FAQ/partitions.html#can-linux-access-amiga-file-systems

Forget to use modern Amiga FilsSystems like:

- FFS2

- PFS (Professional File System)

- and Journaled File sistem called Smart File System SFS.

Amiga reads USB memory keys thru normal Windows FAT...

You can also access Amigas from your Linux machines thru Samba.

Using Amiga Emulators UAE, WinUAE, E-UAE, then you can create fake hard disks that are seen by Linux and Windows as enormous files (512 megabytes, 1 gigabyte, etc...).

These fake harddisks can format and mount normal Amiga filesystems totally transparent to the host system and you can access hte fake/virtual HDDs using the emulator facilities.

But I actually put 'partitions' in quotations since I was trying to ask you in secret how your Amiga machines were doing.  As AmigaBob will tell you, the health of an Amiga system owned by anyone here is top priority for me.  ^.^

Oh, and now that I'm growing as a Linux user and have started using virtual machines, I think I will go ahead and try emulating Amiga-sama.  ^___^

(or barring her, at least MorphOS or AROS)....  ^.^

(AROS,... naturally,... standing for AMIGA Research Operating System.....)

(Anyone who says otherwise shall have his/her/its lungs ripped out, breaded and pan-fried by a temporarily-insane piggy.  ^______________^
